Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Spondyloarthritis (SpA) represents a heterogeneous group of rheumatic inflammatory entities involving the axial skeleton, enthesis, and peripheral joints and may occur together with extra-articular manifestations, such as psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, and uveitis.

Important advances in the understanding of SpA have been made in the area of classification criteria, significantly improving the approach to these diseases and the identification of patients in early stages of the disease. Numerous studies have elucidated the immune mechanisms underlying specific clinical manifestations of the disease, opening the way to new and more personalized therapeutic approaches. In particular, new and more specific treatments promise to make feasible treat-to-target and drug-free remission in SpA, which were once impossible objectives. Although the diagnostic delay in SpA is still considerable, the increased awareness and insights into diagnosis at early stages of the disease are contributing to improving its management.

The present Special Issue aims to deepen the knowledge of SpA from bench to bedside, providing a broad update on the pathophysiological, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of the disease.
